Jewels of Africa

Dorothy Snyder's avatar Dorothy Snyder

“Jewels of Africa” is a series I painted from photographs I took while on safari in Kenya in 2007. Although the ideal situation would have been to paint directly from observation, African animals are not inclined to pose for those of us observing them, and so I photographed the animals with future paintings in mind. Once I finished the animals I added the tribeswomen and the sunset to complete the series.
